LG G3 Gets LineageOS 15.1 OFFICIAL Update – All variants

Recently all of the LG G3 variants have got OFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1 update which are maintained by developer HardStyl3r and firebird11.

I know that these updates are late when we already have Android Pie launched couple of quarters ago and also we have many Lineage OS 16 UNOFFICIAL update and Android Pie Download available for many devices.

Well, despite of slow updates, it’s always good to have OFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1 build over an UNOFFICIAL one. Once you get an OFFICIAL build, its possible that all of the LG G3 phones will get OFFICIAL LineageOS 16 earlier than these LineageOS 15.1 builds.

If you are curious, following are the downloads and update guide etc.

Optionally you can install GApps or microG to get app store and other apps.

I will add LineageOS 15.1 update guide for all of the LG G3 phones individually and give the links here in a later time.

What is the difference between OFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1 and UNOFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1 for LG G3 variants:

Well, I have already pointed out few of the key differences between OFFICIAL and UNOFFICIAL LineageOS builds out of which, periodic updates, BUG fixes etc. are key to note.

Having an OFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1 means most of the key hardware components would be working out of the box.

How to update to latest build of OFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1 for LG G3 phone:

OFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1 supported device will get OTA updates for latest NIGHTLY builds.
NIGHTLY builds come once in a week and you will get a notification on your phone (if I am not wrong).

For now, that’s all for LG G3 and LineageOS 15.1.
